I had jet black on my 335 and it was hard to maintain. Chips and scratches will show up easily. The non metallic paints tends to be softer than metallic ones too. So at 3pm miles the front of the car looks like it was sand blasted. My next car a 535 and was black sapphire metallic. Since it was metallic it was was less prone to chipping than jet black. My current car is space gray and am convinced to never get a black car again. There is so much you can do to clean a black car but black hides defects very poorly.
